The Loch Ness Monster has been spotted on Minneapolis' Lake Harriet. While some speculation exists, at least by a joking guy interviewed by KARE-11, that the creature is part of a millfoil-abatement plan, my guess from looking at the website LakeCreature.com is that it's art. (It's got a Twitter account, too.) The work has a striking resemblance to that of artist Cameron Gainer, whose sculptures -- entitled _[ — have showed up in Brooklyn, Key West, and other locales. Gainer, formerly based in New York, now calls Minneapolis home; he's engaged to Walker Art Center director Olga Viso. Next week we'll see if I'm right: the project's site says it'll officially reveal details on Thursday.
